Cafe Pacifico


London's original Mexican cantina, Cafe Pacifico in Covent Garden has been a quality venue for many parties and special events for over 33 years, serving contemporary and classic Mexican dishes alongside superb margaritas, tequila and cocktails. Creating a cosy ambience throughout, the long wooden bar and Mexican decor are the most eye-catching features of Cafe Pacifico, situated within a large open warehouse in one of London's most lively areas, and conveniently close to Covent Garden Tube Station. Freshly made, home-style Mexican food is served to a vibrant crowd. As well as the much loved tacos and fajitas, there is also a choice of seasonal modern Mexican specialities, including fillet of beef with Caribbean jerk sauce or wild mushroom and roasted pepper enchiladas. The Lunch menu is a great deal for a quick and inexpensive offering of tacos, enchiladas and mini fajitas.On Friday and Saturday evenings, Cafe Pacifico accepts bookings up until 19:30 after which they operate on a first come, first served basis. Diners are welcome to wait in the holding bar, should a table not be immediately available.
